I don't hate his guts, I just don't get off on listening to a grown man try to sound like a 13 year old girl.

He was the only GD keyboardist I ever saw as after 100+ shows I chose not to follow them into the Vince/Hornsby era.

That being said I never was an enthusiast. I hated his songs, and felt each one 'robbed' me of another Jerry tune I may have heard that night.His keys however were more than adequate and were a real highlight on songs like Big River and China Doll.

His duo with Garcia on Dear Mr. Fantasy was probably his apex in my opinion.Judging from the From the Vault video releases he seems to have energized Jerry which alone should earn our appreciation.
